[at-l] Pocketmail experiences on long-distance hikes?
I have used a palm your years. It just like a mini-computer. You would
have a web browser and email client so you could keep in touch where
ever you have cell reception. The big downside would be that many
people are anti-tech and anti-cellphone on the trail.
With the Treo you would also be able to take down all your trail journals also.
I do not have any experience with a Treo on the trail, they are pretty
pricey because they are also cell phones and I do not want to have to
carry this PDA with me all time because I use my cell as a home phone.
There are a ton of programs for the Palm OS. If you do some searching
on the web you will find a lot of information on cell phone company
web sites, palm's web site, and a lot of 3rd party sites.
